I am having trouble with the quality of the pictures when displayed through the picture viewer. Of course, the pre-loaded wallpaper pictures are perfect, but any of my photos are greatly distorted with jpeg artifacts. What gives?!?!?
I took the time to load photos to the phone which I first prepared in Photoshop with low compression (high quality) and exact screen size for the Torch (360x480), but when I loaded them to the phone, they looked horrible.
So how can I get the picture viewer to cooperate and display my pictures without the extreme compression? I know it is possible since it does it with the pre-loaded images. I have spent hours looking for some sort of display setting, but have found nothing.
This really ruins the whole experience for me and makes me want to return the phone if there is no solution. I did not have this problem with my old Bold.

I had the same problem. So instead of saving pictures at 360x480, I opted for a higher resolution, 1600 and up (with jpeg quality 80%) and transferred to the media card without optimizing. Now it looks fine and I can enlarge them and still not see and pixelation/distortion. It might work for you.
